Later printing. From the cover: “THE BURNING SHORE is a marvellous epic of courage and love that moves from the lazing skies of war torn France to the secret heart of the African wilderness. It is the odyssey of a beautiful young woman of aristocratic birth, Centaine de Thiry, in search of love and fortune — a monumental journey of mystery and discovery. Once again in THE BURNING SHORE Wilbur Smith proves that he is the master storyteller. Whether his subject is love or war, whether he is describing the conflict of men and machines above the trenches of 1917 or the onslaught of a ravenous man-eating lion, he writes with such authority and hypnotic attention to detail that the reader is swept away on the torrent of the narrative. Magnificently exciting, full of vivid action, passion and mystery, THE BURNING SHORES certainly one of the richest and most entertaining adventure stories of our time.”
